CoolSculpting® Q & A

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting, also called cryolipolysis, is a non-surgical procedure that is used to sculpt your body by targeting and freezing fat cells.

When you undergo CoolSculpting at White Diamond Medical Clinic and Spa, Dr. Joy White uses a device to freeze the fat cells you struggle to lose. These frozen cells later die, and your body gets to work disposing of them by breaking them down.

What are the benefits of CoolSculpting?

There are many benefits to using CoolSculpting as opposed to another option like liposuction to remove unwanted fat.

Since CoolSculpting is non-invasive, you won’t have to go through the trauma of surgery. Plus, your risk of complications and infections are significantly lowered in comparison to having liposuction.

Other benefits of CoolSculpting include:

  • Long lasting results
  • Minimal discomfort during the procedure
  • Natural looking results
  • Little to no downtime after the procedure

Typically, only one treatment is needed. However, if the specific areas you’re targeting with this treatment need more treatments, Dr. White will discuss how many treatments you'll need to achieve your desired results.

Am I a good candidate for CoolSculpting?

You may be a good candidate for CoolSculpting if you are:

  • Not pregnant or planning to become pregnant
  • In good health
  • Looking for a non-surgical way to remove stubborn fat

This procedure is generally used to target specific areas on the body. To be a good candidate, you should be targeting stubborn fat on the:

  • Abdomen
  • Inner or outer thighs
  • Under your chin
  • Flank (muffin top or love handles)
  • Upper arms

You’ll still need to have enough fat to work on before having CoolSculpting, but be near your ideal weight. Dr. White can help you determine if you’re qualified at your consultation. If you need to lose a significant amount of weight, she can discuss other options that might be right for you.

Does CoolSculpting hurt?

During your CoolSculpting procedure, you may feel cold and experience some discomfort. You’ll feel intense cold in the areas Dr. White works on, as well as some pinching and pulling as Dr. White draws the fat to the device.

If you have concerns or are experiencing severe pain, let Dr. White know right away.
